“I’ve been helping annuity and life producers for more than 25 years, and it never gets old. I think part of the reason is that we encourage our Members to bring us their difficult cases or challenge us with their unique needs, because if they know they can count on us when the job is tough, then they are confident in our services every day.”
Prior to developing and leading the marketing team at Ideal, Karen was the successful manager of a team of annuity advisors responsible for over $300 million in annual premium. And, though her previous position was with a much larger organization, Karen believes the competition has nothing on IPG. She explains,
“It is so exciting to be able to work at Ideal Producers Group where we are a boutique IMO, yet we offer our Members so much! From knowledge and education to incentives and bonuses to service and support, we provide it all. We invest everything we can back into our Agents because, after all, they are the reason we exist.”
Karen lives in Shawnee, Kan., and is the proud mom of five wonderful children: Kyle, who lives in Oklahoma with his wife, Sierra; Dalton, who’s currently attending Dallas Baptist University; Kennedy, who’s currently attending Oklahoma Wesleyan University; Delaney, a junior in high school; and Kaitryn, a seventh grader. Karen is passionate about her faith, her family and her close friends, and travels frequently to connect with them all and create balance in her life.
Though she has a huge love for the Kansas City Chiefs, Karen carries a soft spot in her heart for the Denver Broncos, care of her dad. You will also never catch her missing a KU basketball game!
